New discounts for electric vehicles in British Columbia


British Columbia made a commitment to make our province greener by 2040 and announced another incentive to get us there.

The province is now offering discounts on specialty vehicles, including ATVs, off-road motorcycles, snowmobiles and small seagoing vessels, among others.

“This is another way we are helping to support the economic recovery of British Columbia’s tourism sector while setting ourselves on a path to a cleaner future,” said Bruce Ralston, Minister of Energy, British Columbia Mines and Petroleum Resources.

Reimbursement from the Special Purpose Vehicle Incentive Program for all-terrain vehicles used for tourism is only available for companies and fleet applicants and not for individuals. In addition, the province offers discounts on commercial electric vehicles such as passenger shuttles, airport vehicles, utility vehicles and more.

Consumers can get discounts on personal clean energy vehicles up to $ 3,000 and individuals can claim discounts on electric motorcycles and low-speed vehicles, while incentives for more expensive commercial electric vehicles can reach 50,000 $.

While trying to encourage cleaner energy by expanding the rebate program to include more types of vehicles, the province reduced rebates on clean energy personal vehicles last year to $ 3,000 from the previous amount that could reach $ 6,000 and the government has no immediate plans to increase motivation.
